Em     G                        C                      Em
Virgil Caine is the name, and I served on the Danville train
G                Em                C                   Em
'Til Stonewall's cavalry came, and tore up the tracks again.
C                 G           Em           G
In the winter of '65, we were hungry, just barely alive.
Em                C                         G      Em              A
By May the tenth, Richmond had fell, it's a time I remember, oh so well,

    G          C               G             Em
The night they drove old Dixie down, and the bells were ringing,
    G          C               G             Em
The night they drove old Dixie down, and the people were singin'. They went 
G               Em  Am          C
La, La, La, La, La, La, La, La, La, La, La, La 

Em                   G               C                   Em
Back with my wife in Tennessee, when one day she said to me
G        Em               C                    Em
"Virgil, quick, come see, there goes Robert E. Lee!"
C                    Em                   G                 Em
Now I don't mind' em choppin' wood, and I don't care if the money's no good.
   C                         Em
Ya take what ya need, and ya leave the rest,
                G          Em             A
but they should never have taken the very best.

    G          C               G             Em
The night they drove old Dixie down, and the bells were ringing
    G          C               G             Em
The night they drove old Dixie down, and the people were singin'. They went 
G               Em  Am         C
La, La, La, La, La, La, La, La, La, La, La, La 

Em               G       C              Em
Like my father before me, I'm a workin' man
G                Em      C               Em
Like my brother above me, I took a rebel stand.
       C              Em                     G               Em
He was just eighteen, proud and brave, but a Yankee laid him in his grave
  C                  Em
I swear by the mud below my feet,
          G                  Em                D
you can't raise a Caine back up when he's in defeat.

    G          C               G             Em
The night they drove old Dixie down, and the bells were ringing
    G          C               G             Em
The night they drove old Dixie down, and the people were singin'. They went 
G               Em  Am         C
La, La, La, La, La, La, La, La, La, La, La, La
